The Basque cake is not for the feint hearted but can be good fun for those with a certain sense of homour or to raise some eye brows on valentine's night. Massaging the sugarpaste onto the cake Paul couldn't help himself with some unconscious innuendo.

Straightforward cake with the big decision being nipples showing or not? Not everyone's taste so if displaying it in your house or shop maybe do so discretely.
